    Came across this device in a drawer full of unorganized stuff from a bulk purchase. Veritas/Lee valley printed on it, but my inquiry to them has gone unanswered, so I've turned to the GREAT source of info-you folks! Help needed, please. Ed

    inlay question

    Friend asked how to do a banding inlay on a table top. I've done some inlay work, but I'm at a lost on just how to do a precise mortise on the corners. The table has a concave on both sides of a convex curve as viewed from above. Any suggestions other than a CNC? Makerspace is closed...

    Mike gets around

    Received a small table this past weekend from a friend that's downsizing. Found a maker's mark in the drawer after starting to correct several ills. Turned out to be manufactured in wife's home town of Buffalo. Checking for further info I came across the image. Surprised to see Klingspor...

    Photo Finish Dilemma

    Our kiddo showed me two of his pieces that have had underlying levels exposed. One from condensation, another from thieves oil. Both appear to have a photographic wood graining applique, because, the substructure is monochromatic, as in "pressboard" or particle board. I would appreciate...

    Which one?

    A small group of neighbors want to replace the chop saw that the host has with either model of the Dewalt 12" sliders. 780 has the XPS system- any benefit having that over stop block? We do a lot of repetition, as we make cutting boards for benefit auctions, etc. Anyone get this and do not...

    Free wood

    Did some one want some of this? Don't think PE comes this far west , ; ) Church had a work day, especially helpful for those who claimed there wasn't insurance on their belongings. Can not believe there were no fatalities, nor even serious injuries after driving through some of the worst of...

    Delta Jointer?

    Looking at the infeed table lifting lever socket for a model 37-190C Delta 6" jointer, or needing thread type and size. The infeed table adjustment handle is missing,( no wonder it was so cheap). There is no notation in instruction manual on size and type of threads. Hate to use a...

    Thanks to the mentors

    Thanks to the advisors and mentors who offered advice on building methods and sequences of panel cabinet doors. Dr.Bob, pop-pop, Dan, Mark, Jim, Matt, & Willem. I was pleased with how well(so far) and easily the setup was obtained. Kept reference tests just in case. Thanks to a new friend...

    Hot day with Mike

    Another kudo for Mr Davis and his willingness to drive, and to help educate fellow woodworkers. Needed an inspiration to do up those wonderful chisels I got at Aldi's (8bucks) years ago, and fussed at today working on strike plate install. Seven years ago from FB, Ed

    Planet Mesquite Demo

    Last evening John Tisdale displayed his Planet Mesquite project for the first time at the Dallas Area Woodturners group. What a fascinating piece of wood turning. I'm beginning to understand how "everything is bigger in Texas " applied, if this is an example. Oneway offered advice on...

    Raised panel question

    Making just two panel doors for the house. Does it matter if the rails and stiles are shaped before doing the cove and relief on the panel? Or should I run the panel first?

    2x4 entry

    Just completed one of my entries for the local club, NTWA, which I could say was fun (except for the hours of rasping and sanding). I glued up squared 2 byes and cut rings on band saw free hand. Definitely need to make a circle jig. Quarter for scale. Ed

    Delta SQUAWKING ?

    Finally got some help hanging my Delta 50-875 air cleaner and now it is not working. Making a sound like it doesn't like something (warning signal?)so it is getting power. It is not level. No note in instructions as to this issue. Removed filters and washed the initail and shook out the cloth...

    Headed to SWAT again in less that two weeks. Wondering if anyone else would be attending from the Triangle. Last two years I met several folks from NC. Having only the Greensboro and Georgia symposiums to compare SWAT to, I think it is worth the trip, at least from Plano ; ) Stay safe, Ed

    Mirka DEOS

    My five inch sander had an issue; switch wouldn't work nor would the unit even have the indicator show it was getting power. So back it went, a second time in about two years. What with the packing of the shop, moving, and setting up here in Texas I am sure I put less than two hours on it...

    what caused this aberration?

    Last night at the local meet up a piece of 2x4 was presented. Several suggestions, but nothing conclusive in my mind. Several thought it was beetle induced and or fire kill. Any suggestions from this group? The label side that looks like it was hit with a hammer, but is flat and smooth. Stay...

    Strange site sighted

    Still working through another DW's project. Stumped on this one; strip LED cut in half to run on shelves in island. (Worked fine on reel for the moment I tested it.) Had to expand provided connections, which were for corners, etc. Switched out wiring to get it running,while the one closer to...
